  • How to Use Microservices to Build a Data Lake on AWS Recorded: May 30 2018 44 mins
    Sabyasachi Gupta, Software Architect
    “Data is the new oil.” Just as we have to drill to get oil, we also need to mine data to get information out of it. Google, Facebook, Netflix and other titans of the digital era use data to build great products that touch every part of human life.

    Regardless of scale, building a managed data lake on AWS requires a robust and scalable technical architecture. They often use microservices during the build process. A microservice architecture is centered around building a suite of small services focused on business capabilities and are independently deployable. It uses lightweight protocols and run on its own processes, which makes a microservice architecture ideal for building decoupled, agile, and automatable data lake applications on AWS.

    Join this session with Sabyasachi Gupta, Software Architect at Zaloni, to learn more about:
    - The what and why of a microservices architecture
    - The different layers of a data lake stack
    - Why is metadata important and how to capture it in AWS
    - The relationship between Serverless and Microservices and available options on AWS

  • Future-Proof your Data Lake with the Proper Architecture Recorded: Feb 7 2018 49 mins
    Raj Nadipalli, Director of Product Support and Professional Services at Zaloni
    As more and more organizations delve into the world of big data, they’re noticing that it’s not wise to dump data into a data lake without proper guardrails in place. Instead, companies need to architect and build their data lake with scalability, flexibility and governance in mind.

    Based on hundreds of data lake implementations, Zaloni has built a reference architecture that has proven to be scalable and future-proof. This architecture is based on a zone approach through which data can live and travel throughout its lifecycle. This zone-based approach can greatly facilitate data governance and management, particularly if a data lake management platform, such as the Zaloni Data Platform, is in place.

    How should these zones be defined within a data lake environment? What should happen to data within each of these zones? In this webinar, Raj Nadipalli, Director of Product Support and Professional Services at Zaloni, will answer these questions and address how to architect a data lake that is future-proof in the ever-changing big data ecosystem.
  • Sink or swim? Architecting the data lake to drive, survive and thrive. Recorded: Oct 31 2017 44 mins
    Matt Aslett, Research Director of Data Platforms & Analytics at 451 Research, and Kelly Schupp, VP of Marketing at Zaloni
    Today, big data is enabling the advanced analytics that companies have dreamed of for driving their business. And as forward-thinking companies take advantage of big data and advanced analytics to drive digital transformation initiatives, it is forcing the laggards to realize that they will have to do the same if they want to survive.

    The generally accepted architectural model for harnessing big data is a data lake. But data lakes, if leveraged simply as cheap storage within which to dump data, will inevitably disappoint. As the saying goes, garbage in, garbage out. Data lakes present unique challenges that must be dealt with if that big data set is going to be turned into actionable information.

    So what does it take to succeed with a data lake? Why do some organizations get real value out of big data, while others struggle?

    In this webinar, Matt Aslett, Research Director of Data Platform and Analytics at 451 Research and Kelly Schupp, VP of Data-driven Marketing at Zaloni, will discuss ideal data lake use cases such as Customer 360 and IoT. They will also discuss Zaloni’s data lake maturity model with which the data-eager company can chart its ideal course and roadmap.
